Editorial

I recall the first time that I heard of a flying fortress, and thought that something like that could surely only exist in a video game; after all, it just seemed ridiculous! However, as I got older and read more seriously into aviation I soon realized that the idea of the flying fortress wasn’t exactly new; they’d been around since the Second World War. This made me look further into them as flight simulators. I decided to head back in time a little bit and try out these remakes of the B-52G and B-52D Stratofortress, which was released for FS2004.

I like to use these older mods and mess around a bit with older simulators to see if I can really spot the big differences, and with this mod I have to admit that I did struggle to tell the difference at times in terms of the detail. The quality of the camouflage liveries that are produced ae very detailed, managing to give you a proper looking aircraft that is made for fighting. The attention to detail on the camo is brilliant, as it follows the kind of designs that you would have got if you wanted to go camo in the skies!

The aircraft, however, were created in Gmax which did intrigue me. The level of the model and the attention to detail on the minor and major facets of its model are very impressive, making it really easy for me to get to grips with the aircraft quite quickly from a design perspective. Everything is relatively clear in what it does, so it was easy enough to get to grips with the aircraft shape as well as the range of options that were waiting for me in the cockpit. The addition of the virtual cockpit was another nice touch, too, which made controlling and using the aircraft in general so much easier.

You can also pop open the bomb doors and have access to various other little nice animations and changes that can alter the experience for you slightly. Given that the aircraft this mod is built on is hardly brimming with extra features and additions, I wasn’t expecting a litany of new features and extras, anyway. This makes a big change in terms of helping you get used to the aircraft, since there is relatively little to learn in comparison to many of other aircraft out there.

What is included, though, is incredibly powerful. It gives you more or less total control over everything that you need to safely navigate a flight and do it properly, so it can be quite enjoyable to mess around and see what you can come up with as you fly around! This relative lack of options does let you both experiment but it also helps you start to master the hardware and get to grips with the way that it operates at all times.

If you want to see what an aircraft of this size and scale can be like, I recommend that you check this mod out.

Seems to work OK in FSX-SE but no engine noise. Don't know what's up with that........ Replaced sound file with the entire sound file from Alpha F-111 Pig HUD to see if a more "modern" sound file would work but still nothing.

I would have liked a more detailed pannel than a 747 but, it works great. Aircraft detal is spot-on. Great to fly.
